2) Role of Mobile in Industrial IoT: Industrial IoT is generally believed to be accelerated by the technologies & products, getting better and cheaper in the sensor, egde computing, cloud, network connectivity and the big data space. However, one mega trend that actually contributes a lot more to Industrial IoT, yet somewhat under appreciated, is Mobile. Every industrial worker these days has a smartphone, and what this does is bring in a whole lot of users, compared to just a handful of them before, and this explosion of user base will be crucial factor for innovations in Industrial IoT.

3) From Design to Manufacturing, IIoT is Transforming the Factory: Manufacturing teams everywhere are focused on driving continuous improvement; they need to identify opportunities for improving output, to drive better quality, while also lowering costs and reducing waste. The Industrial Internet of things (IIoT) provides the solution to solve these problems with unprecedented speed and flexibility.
